I managed the Moshi Monsters blog for nearly eight years in my role as Community Editor for Mind Candy, a London-based gaming company. I was initially attracted to the Moshi brand because of the vibrant, cute artwork and aesthetic. In my early days at Mind Candy, I wore many different hats including moderation management and customer service, but I fell into a creative role right away, playing a major part in creating the brand voice, doing design work for the blog, and developing the characters. These images were designed for the Moshi Monsters blog as well as our social channels.

The Moshi Monsters had pets, called Moshlings, that were grouped into sets. This flow chart helps you figure out which set you’d fit into best.

Scare Bears were items in the Moshi Monsters game (toys for the monsters). This was a feature where kids were asked to pick their favorite Scare Bear and the one they picked would tell them something about their personalities.

For this image, I altered existing vectors to create a new scene featuring scrambled letters to spell "Misty," the new character’s name.
